So, Homegame was bloody good. As is my wont, I took a bunch of amateurish footage (this time on the iPhone) and have compiled it into this video which hopefully gives a small taste of how good the performances and atmosphere were. Apologies for the general shiteness of the cameraman.
Yes, Adam and Joe have returned to BBC 6 Music. The best radio station in the world, that you and I saved. And although I appeared briefly in person on the station last year, I was possibly even more chuffed when a few weeks ago my chuffing leg got a mention on the bugger, by no less than.. Michael Legg. In fact, he said my leg was his favourite leg. So there!
I’ve officially disbanded the short-lived Famous Drunk project. But I’m pleased to say that the song ‘threatening footsteps’ was in fact the winner of MuleIdol 2015! Ok, it wasn’t the winner but then there wasn’t a winner at all, and it was very nice of The Mule to include it (and you’ve got to love the MuleIdol jingle that Tallah Brash created):
I also wrote a mildly controversial piece for the Guardian Edinburgh suggesting we should celebrate the City’s creativity. It brought up quite a few comments about the difficulty in getting support for grassroots creativity and the lack of venues etc. The Scotsman’s Radar blog are currently running an interesting series which addresses why the music scene is not as strong as it could be: Part 1Part 2Part 3
Of course I started the Creative Types series of interviews over here with Bart, Dylan, Euan and Lloyd being the unwitting guinea-pigs for what has now become the Clear-Minded Creative Types series on the new blog. Stevie Kearney, aka The Mule whose podcast features above, is the 11th interview to feature so far this year. Not bad for me, given my previous record of keeping up blog series. And there’s more to come..
